Art Intense

All beginner’s workshops provide a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, where students will be introduced to the mediums with professional advice and tuition. Exercises are explained using easy step-by-step instructions which will develop your understanding of traditional skills and techniques, as well as contemporary styles.

There will be live demonstrations and constructive feedback and guidance is always given. Students are encouraged and inspired to create several pieces of original artwork from professional photographs, still life aids and 3d objects. Students will leave each lesson after having enough hands-on drawing/painting time to start building a confident portfolio!

Everything students need will be provided therefore there are no hidden fees/costs, and no need to purchase anything in preparation for any beginners course. All materials are professional artist quality including easels, artist grade pencils, oil pastels, blenders, professional wash brushes, hog-hair brushes, watercolour paper, sketchbooks, stainless steel painting knives, and professional grade paints - Just to list a few.
